Still to visit Orpen as well.
Is there a long row of attached bungalows?


No its not all attached. It is a long row, but with 2 bungalows next to each other and parking spaces in between.

Hi Kite

The gate is now moved away. We didn't get any noise.

Well the traffic still goes through Orpen, but the petrol station also moved to the new gate, so that is okay. You also check out at the gate.
